WATCH: Chris Farrell on bouncing back and Benetton’s good away form

Munster centre Chris Farrell says that Munster are over the Champions Cup semi final loss to Saracens after beating Connacht at Thomond Park last Saturday.

Johann van Graan’s men saw off their provincial rivals in a physical contest and Farrell believes that Munster have bounced back after that disappointing European loss.

“Getting the win over Connacht was big in terms of us bouncing back from the disappointment of Coventry.

“It’s really important in defining good teams on how they react from defeats like that especially as it’s a couple of years in a row now that we have lost semi finals.

“You can lose a bit of motivation after that but luckily in this sport, you get six days, seven days to prove yourself again and we did that against Connacht.”

Farrell also talked about Benetton’s excellent recent form away from home. Click below to watch the full video.
